Anopura – The Smallest Luxury Hotel In India, Perhaps In The World

The smallest luxury hotel in India, perhaps in the world, named Anopura is located in the shadow of the ancient Aravali mountains, an hour’s drive from Jaipur, Radjasthan. This tiny hotel features just two bedrooms within the main thatched house in addition to a romantic Rajasthani-tented bedroom in the garden, surrounded by swathes of lush free farmland.

Anopura - The Smallest Luxury Hotel in the World

Designed by Philippe de Villegas as a country house, surrounded by farmlands, it has a thatched roof so as to blend into the local countryside and carries a collection of local artworks. This traditional Rajasthani country home with a stunning step-well inspired plunge pool, Anopura artfully brings together the necessities of the most demanding Western traveler within a landscape and agricultural environment virtually unchanged in a millennia.

From the moment you arrive, the superbly trained staff welcomes you with chilled towels and fresh seasonal fruit juice, where you realize that you are truly in the lap of luxury. As you explore your new surroundings, you can move through the garden, rich with the scent of frangipani and other perfumed plants, arriving through a book-laden anteroom into Anopura’s shaded central courtyard, off which are the bedrooms, the dining room and a small study with satellite television and an Internet connected workstation.

In front of the house lies a stone clad plunge pool surrounded by charpoys, the traditional Indian day-bed, where you can lie back and take in the majestic views of the hills of the Aravali. You may also choose to explore your new domain on foot, mountain bike, or more leisurely, by camel cart or jeep. To one side of the pool is a large pavilion for relaxing, reading, dining or simply taking aperitifs during sunset.

Although the smallest hotel in India, Anopura can provide the greatest luxury and beauty that you’ve ever experienced. [Anopura]

  1. This post surely tells us that how big things come in small packages. The Anopura is a perfect example of pure luxury and elegance yet undersized.
